Son Lux’s New Music Video Animated with Hundreds of Pins and Rubberized Thread

May 7, 2015

Christopher Jobson

In this new music video for Son Lux‘s “Change Is Everything,” a montage of singing faces and geometric forms is set in motion with hundreds of pins and rubberized thread moved across the surface of foam boards. The clip was created by The Made Shop who used a mixture of rotoscoping and stop motion to bring Son Lux’s new track to life through 4,000 frames over a period of three weeks. In this making of clip, director Nathan Johnson details the arduous and surprisingly painful process of moving pins thousands of times. (via Quipsologies, NPR)
